More than 2,500 comments on proposed Penzance heliport, as planning decision draws near
More than 2,500 people have so far registered comments with Cornwall Council over proposals for a £2 million private-sector heliport to restore passenger helicopter flights between Penzance and the Isles of Scilly.
The planning application is due to be determined by February. The heliport would be close to Penzance’s Sainsbury’s supermarket, which was itself the site of the former BIH heliport on Eastern Green where a helicopter service to St Mary’s and Tresco operated for 48 years. Flights ceased in October 2012.
